What do you need for scholarships?

Scholarships vary. Requirements vary -  Some may require a certain GPA or ACT/SAT scores, some may require you study a specific field in college (ex. healthcare, engineering, education, etc.), some may require volunteer work, some may require short or long essays, and some may require letters of recommendation. IT TAKES TIME TO FIND AND COMPLETE SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS.


Letter of Recommendation Request Form

For some scholarships/admission applications, you may need a letter of recommendation from a principal, teacher, school counselor, employer or someone who knows you well. Fill out this request form so they will know useful information about you in order to write an exceptional letter of recommendation. PLEASE ASK THEM TO WRITE THE LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION AT LEAST 2 WEEKS BEFORE THE DUE DATE. I also suggest you give your recommender an unofficial transcript and a resume.
